OPENBOX Architects’ recent residential design intertwines architecture, interior and landscape in the form of marble sculpture. The initial idea is to allow the inhabitants’ behaviour to carve a dwelling space into a monolithic piece of marble.
Statement of the jury
The sculptural architecture used here results in a building that conveys an impression of airiness and lightness. This two-structure house almost appears to be floating on its base. A strong design which, with its intriguing combination of white marble, glass and wood effortlessly maintains a balance between heavy and light.
